Poor funding, bane of African tertiary education, says Oloyede
Presenting a paper entitled, “The Future of Higher Education in Africa,” at the third international conference organised by the Babcock University, School of Education and Humanities, Oloyede said funding of all universities in Nigeria put together constitutes less than the funding of one university in Europe and America.
Other common problems according to him include, but not limited to brain drain, ‘massification’ in enrolment, impatient private proprietorship, high level of poverty, low level of technology, taste for foreign goods and bad governance.
The past president, Association of African Universities (AAU), added that these shortcomings have largely affected both the input and output activities of institutions across Africa.
